After the gameplay trailer during Opening Night Live, you can now try out Lies of P for yourself at Gamescom. That’s our first impression.
Cologne, Germany – To this day, many Souls fans have been wanting the action role-playing game Bloodborne, a milestone in Soulslike games, on PC. The setting, the look, the atmosphere – to this day, the overall package is an absolute masterpiece for many players, despite the Elden Ring. Now, however, a fresh, promising title is in the works that could bring smiles to Bloodborne fans next year.
Lies of P alluded to – If you like Bloodborne, you’ll feel right at home here
What’s the matter? In Lies of P you take on the role of a strangely human Pinocchio. In a dark game world that has a Victorian touch and is strongly reminiscent of Bloodborne, you try to become a real person in the style of the classic fairy tale. You slice your way through all kinds of monsters with a lavish arsenal, complete quests and experience a story in which lies are said to play a major role.
How does Lies of P play? We were able to put our hands on Lies of P for a short time at Gamescom 2022. And the first conclusion after a little more than 10 minutes of playing time: Every Soulslike lover, but especially fans of Bloodborne, will immediately feel at home. The combat system, the weapons, the setting, the atmosphere, the items – all of this is more reminiscent of Bloodborne in Lies of P than in any other representative of the genre.
